Storm Aviation receives UKAS approval
Storm Aviation, part of FL Technics, is delighted to announce that our calibration laboratory in London-Stansted has been approved by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service).
UKAS is a national accreditation body that assess against nationally and internationally agreed standards and organisations that provide conformity assessment for calibration services among other activities.
In most countries ISO/IEC 17025 is the standard for which most laboratories must hold accreditation in order to be deemed technically competent. In many cases, suppliers and regulatory authorities will not accept tests or calibration results from a laboratory that is not accredited. Storm Aviation’s calibration laboratory has met this requirement and is now authorised to perform accredited calibrations in accordance with its scope of work.
With safety being at the forefront of our business, being UKAS accredited gives our customers the added confidence that their tools and equipment are being calibrated to the highest level, whilst meeting UK and international standards.
Ian Jones, Head of Sales for Storm Aviation commented, “At the end of this important and lengthy process, we are pleased with this success. The rigorous analysis of our internal procedures and policies that led to this approval signals an important milestone and reaffirms our commitment to delivering the best service to our customers.”
Danny Wells, Storm Aviation’s Head of Calibration, said “We have been calibrating tooling since 2007, primarily in the aviation industry. Now that we have obtained the UKAS accreditation this opens new doors and opportunities for us, allowing Storm Aviation to continue to deliver for our existing customers, expand into new sectors, and re-engage with organisations we have previously worked with.”
Storm Aviation is a family member of Avia Solutions Group, the leading aviation business group and the largest global ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance, and insurance) provider with a fleet of 165 aircraft.
